  • Andreas Platzl

    The fact that the Baldeneysee has been created artificially, you can hardly see it today. Not only water sports fans, he attracts, but just the continuously developed foot and bike path around the lake is very attractive.

    Pleasantly flat and great to circle around by bike.

    By bike along the lake, you can only on the south bank. On the north shore only the footpath goes along the shore, brave cyclists take course the bike path.

    Getting to the Baldeneysee by bike is actually always possible. !!
    We always take a biker break at Haus Scheppen, there is always something to see, and there is a variety of food and drinks at reasonable prices.

    It is worthwhile in any case to visit the Baldeneysee by bike. Flat and the bike path is well developed. At the house Scheppen you can take a break. But overcrowded on weekends and just too crowded. Unfortunately it does not make fun anymore.

    Wonderful easy bike tour, always right along the water. Best surface, no gradients. Partly through shady deciduous forests, therefore pleasant to drive on even in the heat. Wonderful flora and fauna on and next to the lake.

    If you cycle along here, you have two options. Down along the lake, you can see Villa Krupp from below. Or you cycle on the side of the villa, then you can make a detour to the villa.

    The Baldeneysee is the recreational address for the city of Essen and the surrounding area. You are in a jiffy in a beautiful landscape. From water sports to hiking, there is something for everyone here.

    The Baldeneysee is used today, among other things, for water sports and as a local recreation area. On its banks in Heisingen is the Heisinger Bogen bird sanctuary, a breeding ground for great crested grebes, cormorants, herons and other endangered birds.
    The Hespertalbahn, a museum train, runs on the south-east bank in summer.
    The continuously developed footpaths and cycle paths around the lake have a length of about 14 kilometers. This is where the "Marathon around Lake Baldeney" takes place.
    Annual sailing regattas are held on the lake, some of which are of national importance. There is also a regatta course for rowing and canoe racing and underwater anchorages for canoe polo pitches. Competitions up to European championships are held here.
